PREFACE.

The Author did hope, that this volume would have embraced the Varieties of Female Cha

racter, as well as of Female Piety, because character and piety are so identical. He has, however, found it impossible to trace the developement of both, under the name of Martha. The Lydias, or the Developement of Female Character," will, therefore, follow this volume, and complete the first section of the Closet Library.

The Author gratefully acknowledges, that he has not appealed in vain to the Mothers or the Daughters in British “ Israel.”

Newington Green, 1836.

P.S. The Portrait is the Frontispiece to

the Series; and belongs to the first Volume.
